You beat me too it mentioning Opeth, Everyone go find opeth music and listen to it NOW!!! You won’t be sorry!!!
fabi the underachiever
I agree with Fabi, that is utter bullshit. But its funny how you bring up that point too, b/c the band really had no big promotion deals or anything during there whole career.
What is underground? Music that hasnt been given the full attention that it deserves? And when it gets the attention its mainstream??? Good music is good music
After i made this post yesterday and i went to the Pantera website, and I heard lots of interviews with Phil Anselmo and he was talking about his label is just trying to hype Pantera and Down and make as much money in the band. The thing is about these bands, there not about the pyro Tec nicks, no explosions, no paint, no stage themes, just music. this is a quote from the show " We get to the god damn point these days, non of that bullshit, your not gonna just sit there and watch me and sing and get your dck hard…nah Fck that your here to go f*cking crazy!" The interviews are great, if your actually interested in this genre of music. He even talks about working with the guitarist from Black Sabbath TONY IOMMI.
Here are the links to the sites i was talking about
Opeth was alright, i didnt download to much of it, any suggestions on songs?
Did I say that Opeth was underground? That wasn’t what I was trying to imply
Well, I am sorry if I sounded like an ass yesterday… But I feel quite passionate about integrity/things making sense and try to avoid hipocrisy and try to point it out when I think I see it.
And the way I see it, even the most evil pseudo-industrial/death metal/goth crap is in the end quite close to being mainstream pop-music when you take into consideration how similar the song structures are, but also the fact that the ‘acolytes’ of this supposedly ‘unconventional’ music often only want something to dance to, like their mainstream backstreet boys-fan or techno moron counterparts.
That’s why I like to refer to a lot of music as ‘dance music’ just to piss people off and to show them that they are hypocrites…
That is not to say that I am perfect, or that you cannot listen to techno/the backstreet boys/staind/the cure/NIN… I just think you should be honest to yourself about the nature of that music and why you listen to it.
I hope I didn’t come across as a self-righteous little bitch… I just like to ramble.
Nah, never your comments are great Fabi. Ruthless and final, thats how a strong mind lives in this world.
Has anyone ever heard of New Found Power? Thats the other members of Pantera, seems like its gonna be another great band to look forward too(for my case), i think Zak Wylde is apart of it too.(Black Label Society/Ozzy)
O-yeah, lately i been to the nin.com, for a while now nothing on the site has been working, untill now .
Its nothing big or anything, but its a change, so i think NIN might release something new.(if intrested click on the right corner)
Other than that, i know the lead singer of STP(Stone Temple Pilots) is joing the old members of GNR(Guns and Roses) i think its called Reload, not sure yet,but im looking forward to that too. So if any of you people out there heard of anything new and special affecting the metal/rock music of today make a post, and shed some light.
Im a fiend towards new music
Yeah, I know about nin.com. I think they updated it last friday.
Did you know that on one of those pages there is a hidden message? go to nin.com/halo/4.html … then adjust the brightness of your monitor to REALLY bright… soon you should be able to make out a binary code (1’s and 0’s). If you translate those into ASCII it becomes a written text.
Cant find the hidden message , every computer i used wont go any brighter than it is any other ideas?
Opeth=Best Band ever!
They’re neither pop nor underground…but I don’t care…they rock…they’ll be my fav. Band forever A few years ago I thought the same about Slipknot though
If you like Opeth, try Novembre my second favourite band…or Agalloch or Katatonia…
@ hubbs: make a screenshot and then play with the colors/brightness/contrast in photoshop or a similar program.
or maybe look at the source code of that particular website… the background pic (4.gif i think) is the message…
Oh, I just noticed where you come from fabi…I live in Hamburg too
Athsome dude. We can like have a thweet gay LD meetup.
Where in Hamburg do you live?
I listen to Katatonia too. They’re pretty cool I have their 2nd album (Brave Murder Day), in which Mikael Akerfeldt from Opeth is doing the vocals
Anyone heard of “Sentenced”? If I mentioned there name Down Under, no-one would what im talking about. Anyway, just wondering what other people’s opinion is about this band? I think they are awesome, but from what I can gather they are considered “Posers” and all those other nasty words in country’s like Finland and stuff.
Never heard of them, i dont listen to foreign music. I feel left out
You ‘foreigners’ should check out In Flames too if you havn’t heard them before. That is a pop/mainstream-melodic death metal band if there ever was one!
And you were right about Opeth. Listening to some of their music right now.
Once again, does anybody recomend(know) any good songs from Opeth to download?? The couple i did download werent the greatest, so fill me in .
I give everything a chance
Even Elevator music
Heh, I’m looking for elevator music myself
Anyway… some songs of Opeth:
The Drapery Falls
In My Time of Need
I live in Schnelsen and you?
That depends on your preferences in music. Generally I’d suggest anything of Blackwater Park because it seems the most accessible record for most people…
Download ‘Bleak’ from BWP
“Godheads lament” is also pretty cool…+“a fair judgment” from their second newest album deliverance…awwwww…OPETH…
If you’re on cable or DSL make sure to download "Black Rose Immortal2 from the Album “Morningrise” to get a feel for the old, raw Opeth…
If you like mellow music, download anything excapt “Weak” of “Damnation” …it’s basically progrock…they did it together with porcupine trees frontman Steve Wilson…it’s amazing…
Alrighty then, thanks
Do any of you guys listen to American Metal?
